2012-08-18 [Amy] Doorknob of Justice

This weekend we had some fun playing tourists in our own town. One of the places we visited is the Basilica of St. Josephat, which is on 6th and Lincoln.  A beautiful building; much of it was build from salvage material from an old post office in downtown Chicago.  Here you see the uniquely styled doorknob which used to be on that Chicago post office.

  1. That’s a great photo. Did you get any more of the ‘found’ objects?

  2. Thanks, Bill! There were actually a couple of different styles of doorknobs on the building, so I got a shot of the other style doorknob as well.

    Much of stone used to build the basilica is also from that Chicago post office… and it truly is a lovely building. If you haven’t ever visited the Basilica, it’s definitely a place to check out when touring Milwaukee.
